Brown Lawyers is changing the way people feel about the law, and about lawyers. We encourage our clients to take a preventive and pragmatic approach to legal planning and services. We do this by specializing in Estate and Business Law. We are a destination for clients that recognize that clarity and preparedness in their business, their assets, their legacy planning, and their relationships lead to a better quality of life and overall individual well being.
Rather than charging an open-ended hourly rate, Brown Lawyers provides our services for an upfront flat fee. We are a law firm designed to help you create abundance, experience wellness in your life, and leave behind a lasting legacy.
We focus on the legal health of our clients. Like other aspects of your health, prevention is the best course of action. Legal health means being prepared for future opportunities and conflicts. When you focus on your legal health you will be better prepared for unexpected and negative outcomes. Legal preparedness allows you to live life to the fullest.
We’re a team of legal professionals.
We’re fun, bright, interesting and engaging. We have fun at work and bring that enthusiasm to our interactions with clients. We may be dealing with some very serious issues that need respect, compassion, and empathy but these situations also require levity, kindness, and pragmatism. Truly, the law is your friend and so are we. We actually believe using the law can be a positive and fun experience with a lawyer, especially in the areas of Estate and Business Law.
I’m committed to staying curious and fearlessly promoting change, in our company and in the world. I love talking with people. I like creating a space where clients can be honest and experience the relief and confidence that honesty provides. I like guiding people to uncover their truths. When I’m not working I love going on adventures with my family, being outdoors, and pursuing my own truth.

It is very rewarding to help make our clients’ lives even just a little bit easier by showing what our unique office has to offer. It is also nice to work for a firm that values balance in life, allowing me more time to spend with my wife, engaging in recreational sports, and enjoying the great outdoors all year round.

I contribute to the team with my organizational skills, my ability to adapt quickly, and my award-winning personality… ok fine, it has never actually won an award but it was an honour just being nominated! Seriously, the team is amazing, and the culture top notch. It feels good to work in a place where I know I make a difference and know what we do matters. Empathy and compassion are rewarded.

I have had many roles over the years, working on real estate transactions, family law, corporate work, estate planning, and estate administration. My experience has provided me with a full and useful legal precedent library. My family values are my driving force. We pretty much are a family here, and I like that. I enjoy hanging out with my husband, kids, and dog. We walk, hike, cook, and dine together. I am about to become a grandmother. For me, it’s all about family.

Second, the rest of the team describes me as the office rover. I often float between portfolios and assist the rest of the team in their day-to-day work or larger projects. Whether it’s estate planning or corporate law, chances are I’m involved in some part of the process.
Last, but certainly not least, I am always a student. As an aspiring lawyer myself, I am always trying to learn more about the law, this profession, and the communities we serve. I hope to learn something new every day and my role at Brown Lawyers provides a perfect opportunity to do so.

“I met with Andrew to arrange my will. I was surprised and delighted at his balanced view of legacy, not primarily money, but more so history, values, and wisdom I might wish to share. I actually enjoyed the process and felt comfortable asking questions.”Vivienne Mathers
“My personal experience with Brown Lawyers has been terrific. Andrew has a holistic and thorough approach to estate planning. Karen and Andrew are very familiar with the investment and insurance industry which I think strengthens their estate planning advice.”Karen Sage
